How to Add Hyperlinks in Illustrator

If you're using Adobe Illustrator to design your Mobimag, you'll need to follow additional steps when adding links to your pages.

Unlike InDesign, you can't directly create a hyperlink in Illustrator. But you can get around this by bringing your PDF files into Acrobat after you've saved them from Illustrator.

Watch the video below for a step-by-step guide on how to add hyperlinks to your Mobimag pages created in Illustrator.

Alternatively, if you want to read the steps instead of watching the video, please read on below.

Once you're done creating your pages in Illustrator, save them as a PDF file
Open your PDF file with Adobe Acrobat
At the right-hand sidebar, click the Edit PDF button
In the top bar that has popped up, click 'Link' and then select 'Auto-Create Web Links from URLs...'

If you have a button, image or other graphic elements on your page, follow the steps below on how to add hyperlinks inside Acrobat.

Click 'Link' and select 'Add/Edit Web or Document Link...'
Select the button or image and set the link action to 'Open a webpage'
Click 'Next' and enter in your website URL
Hit 'Okay' to save your changes

Once you're done adding hyperlinks to your Mobimag pages, you should double-check your links. This step is important to make sure that your links redirect to the right page.

Click 'Link' and select 'View Web Links...'
If you need to change a link, go to 'Properties' and update the URL
Click 'OK' to save your changes
To close the pop up window, click the 'Cancel' button

Finally, save your PDF files and start uploading them into Mobimag.
